The Scots in the field at the PGA Championship have enjoyed a strong first round at Wentworth.
Edinburgh’s David Drysdale leads the field with a six under par 66, tying him at the top with Ireland’s Peter Lawrie.
World number 291 Drysdale, 37, is joined in the top five by Marc Warren, who eagled the 581 yard 12th hole on his way to a 68.
There is further cheer for Scottish golf with Scott Jamieson also on four under, with Paul Lawrie and Richie Ramsay one shot further back on three under par.
The star studded field includes promising opening rounds from world number ten Justin Rose (-5), Ernie Els (-4), Francesco Molinari (-4) and Luke Donald (-3).
South African Els outshone his playing partner for the day, world number one Rory McIlroy (+2).
McIlroy opened with a 76 last year, putting him 12 adrift of eventual winner Luke Donald, and said: "It was a bit of deja vu. Four bogeys in five holes around the turn was very disappointing.
“I feel like I'm playing pretty well and I've just got to go and shoot the scores. There are four par fives and you feel you should be taking advantage of them and three or four under should be the worst you do."
